Thankfulness Abounds: Hugs

When was the last time you hugged someone?

It might depend on which part of the country (or world) you live in.  I have noticed the past few days that I've been in Mississippi that I tend to get hugs from...everyone.

When I wake up in the morning (and go to bed) my parents give me a...hug.

I saw some of my old elementary school teachers I haven't seen in years today...hug.

I run into old friends at the grocery store...hug.

I really enjoy feeling the love around here, but I must tell you about a very special hug I received this week.  It was the first HUG I have ever shared with this person.

I finally got to meet Ellie.  Adams and Jordan's baby girl.



Now have you ever seen a more adorable little girl?  I didn't want to leave her!

Hugging Ellie was surreal--in a good way.  Adams and I started 3 year old pre-school together and I met Jordan the first day of school at Jackson Prep.  She and I were in the same math class...and have been great friends ever since.  Meeting Ellie was so special and wonderful.  I love watching her grow and can't wait to spend more time with her.

When I walked in the room, Jordan said, "Ellie, it's Aunt Em!"  Cue the heart melting.

I am headed to Memphis this weekend to celebrate the upcoming arrival of baby Hunt Maynard--Elisabeth and Hunter's baby--who will make his grand entrance in January.  I'll be spending the weekend with my best college friends--it's sure to be a special time.

Hugs to all!
